Target version:QA - future



We already have some "exotic window managers" covered in openQA tests. Given that already some QA engineers use i3wm in their work environment we should ensure that i3wm properly works to not loose time recovering from overlooked bugs :)

Acceptance criteria

  • there is at least one test scenario starting a i3wm desktop session within at least the openSUSE Tumbleweed tests


  • Look at already existing tests for other window managers, e.g. awesome, and extend, e.g. one scenario with according variables set to cover i3wm
  • Given that packagehub by now covers basically all the packages available in Leap but not SLE we might even want to have an SLE i3wm test

@foursixnine you used "[functional]" in this ticket without team assignment. I doubt this will work and probably will fall between the lines or am I wrong? Shouldn't this be "[functional][u]"? I agree with "Low" and "future" though meaning just as well that anyone else having fun doing so or being bored can pick up this "fun" task regardless of team assignment :)
